Hi Jose.

A creative eye sees all.
I like the tonal values, the positioning and content.
The eye picks up the row of wooden posts and leads itself down to the water and the boat.
The direction of light is another facet as it creates pleasing shadow lines.
I like the high skyline too for us to enjoy more of this scene. tfs

stv ;o))

Very nice subject....Lovely lights and foreground

B/w seems a perfect choice for this peaceful scene. I like the composition with the wooden posts and their shadows leading the eye to that solitary boat on the calm water. Nice addition to the theme.

Ola Jose,

I still consider naive in identifying art but your aesthetics always impress me. You've beautifully drawn perspective and used lateral light in a most charming fashion. Such a lovely contribution for the theme, well done my friend. Thanks for sharing.

Kind Regards,

Good capture of the early evening light & the shadows it brings with it MB,I feel like walking down the pathway & taking the boat out for a rowing.Your choice of a low horizon line,gives for a good scale as to the size of the lake. A peaceful, relaxing visual. TFS

Best Wishes


Hello Jose, a dynamic shot which stands out for its' artistic look.
You have made good use of the posts as they give a good perspective to the scene, and with their shadows offer a contrast with the smoothness of the water.
The boat and the bicycle add to the picture.
B/w is just perfect.
Tfs, regards Jean.

Hello Jose

I like the long shadows and the boat in the water. I feel these two parts of the image made it work...nice


Bonjour Jose,
Belle prise de vue en Noir & blanc,
beau contraste et lumière,
Belle perpective et jeu d'ombrage..
Jolie composition et présentation au thème..

Hi Jose, I like the long afternoon shadows from the posts and the lone boat sitting on the smooth water. Fiona
